This tends to get classified as either a Bitter or an English Pale Ale, but at least there’s general agreement about the British influence. That’s well-deserved. Pour is a clear amber-copper. While Double Barrel Ale doesn’t forsake Firestone Walker’s love of hops, it’s certainly a malt-forward beer. DBA offers a nice amount of complexity for an average-strength, medium-bodied brew. Toffee, toasted malt, bread, chocolate, wood, light citrus, fruitiness(tea-like berry), nuttiness, and cream all come together to form a mellow, easy-drinking beer with just a bit of pleasant bitterness.

I didn’t like it, nothing really stood out, didn’t get much of the oak barrel aromas.

A bit sweet for a bitter, but a nice, approachable British pale ale. Malt is king, as it should be, although it does start a bit musty before sweetening up.

Âmbar avermelhado, translúcida, espuma amarelada de bao formação e persistência. No aroma notas amadeiradas, terrosas, carameladas. No paladar o amargor leve aparece, dulçor discreto. Corpo leve média carbonatação. Com o tempo de copo ficou mais lupulado/herbal, mantendo leve amadeirado. Boa drinkability.

Can. Pours a clear copper with low bubbly white foam. Instant familiar nutty toffee aroma of a British ale, musty at first but opens up pretty well and shows bright toasty malt and oak. Similar taste, caramel malt sweetness, toffee, toasty woody notes. I get vanilla later down the glass. It’s got a decent amount of carbonation, reasonably light. A faithful representation of the style.
